Over the past few days I learned that I work a few blocks away from Atlanta Barber Supply... As I stated in another forum... GREAT for my face.. not so good for the wallet! LOL
So yesterday I strolled over to get a few aftershaves I have not been able to find. It was a great trip NICE people, FANTASTIC selection and all local! On my way out I noticed they had Proraso shaving creams (in the tubes).... well, they had the little "jars" too. I need to see if they have their aftershaves!
Anyway, I had read so much about Proraso here that I thought I would go back to the counter and make another purchase. So I got a tube of the Sandal Wood cream.
I have always used soaps so this was a bit of a new experience. Boy-o the lather is EXCELLENT with the creams. So silky and thick. Now I didnt use a mug or "mixing bowl" I just put some on my face and worked it in with my brush. That technique seemed to work very well.
The scent was just fantastic. Stronger than most soaps I have used. The lather was excellent and made for a very comfortable shave.
So help this old soap user understand the creams... Is there a disadvantage to the way I applied the cream? (Right onto my face... and then working it up with the brush)?
Anyway, I really enjoyed the cream... as a newbie to DE shaving but a soap and brush veteran, this cream was a very nice find!
